Better get your ice cream gloves ready

Hey, I got this press release that look like it was fun enough to pass along. Plus I know how you people like to eat. It’s an ice cream eating contest, and the winner gets a trip to Tampa to see the Eagles take on the Buccaneers. More details after the jump.

Turkey Hill Dairy and 94.1 FREE FM (WYSP) are teaming up to create a series of ice cream eating contests to be held immediately prior to Philadelphia Eagles home games outside Lincoln Financial Field. I know, it’s not a cheesesteak wit contest, but it’s the next best thing. Two contests are already in the books and two more remain (Sunday9/17 and Monday 10/2). The winners of each of the four contests will receive an autographed jersey and football and will be one of four competitors to advance to the finals on Sunday, October 8.

Whoever wins on October 8 will receive a trip for two to Tampa, Florida to see the Eagles take on the Bucs on October 22. Not a bad prize for sucking down a half gallon of ice cream. By the way, the flavor is Eagles Touchdown Sundae and each contest is 3 minutes long.

To register to enter the qualifying matches on 9/17 and 10/2, visit All participants (win or lose) will receive some autographed Brian Dawkins gear to go along with a serious case of brain freeze. 94.1 will also be giving away tickets to that day’s game to one lucky contestant chosen at random.
